Attraction Information

Dinosaur Encounter is a thrilling 12 hole adventure golf course, complete with roaring and moving dinosaurs, artificial rocks and lush vegetation! All set within a 9,000 square foot site that charmingly recreates the mood of the land that time forgot!

Get your putters at the ready and keep your game face on as you sneak past 10 life size dinosaurs who guard the course! The Brachiosaurus and the Spinosaurus are easy to spot, they're ones who are moving… eek!

With tropical plants and palm trees, convincing boulders and an actual waterfall, this is a great place to take kids whether they like golf or not! They will though because the course is simple to play and pleasing to the eye - though of course one eye had better be kept on that Spinosaurus…

And if you're tough enough for dinosaurs you're tough enough for a bit of drizzle: don't let the weather put you off! Although they'll have to close if it gets too horrible you can even access the Encounter throughout the winter: Saturday, Sunday, Bank and School holidays from 10:00 to 17:00! But it's always worth phoning in to check first if it's wet.

And whenever you go, go early - because a second round on the same day is half price! So if you're still a sore loser from this morning, why not try and get revenge this afternoon?!
